This morning I help my husband open a new Etsy account for his homemade radio control airplanes.
We have only got one item listed so far.
He has done a lot of shows in the past and we need to start selling more online too.
He also has a website at

Do you have a website as well as your Etsy store? I have a website, an Etsy store and a Zibbet store.
It is easier to get people to our Etsy store then it is our websites so why don't we list them here and share them so we can all get more traffic to both our website and other stores.
I have a website which is a collection of local crafters,
My husband has a website for radio control airplanes
One of our crafters on Straycatfarm also has an Etsy Store
Stop by and visit our websites and stores and give us the link so we can look at yours and perhaps one of us might get a sale.

Spring must be coming soon because the seed catalogs are appearing in the mailbox.
This is one magazine I look forward to so I can sit down and decide what I am going to plant this year.
With the price of food being high and the quality not always being the best, I would much rather just go out to the garden and pick something fresh right out of the garden.
We all know that tomatos never taste the same from the store as they do fresh from the plant.
The same with berries.
I do seem to have a problem picking fresh peas off the plant, as they find their way to my mouth instead of back in the house. Love the taste of fresh peas.
Time to make an order and then hope that spring comes early so we can get that garden rototilled and planted and then enjoy.

Heart Pendant for Valentines

I have found a wonderful store on Etsy that sells jewelry that is creative and fun and affordable.

The store is and her jewelry would make great Valentines gifts for someone special or a gift for someone just because you care or perhaps something special for yourself.

I picked the picture of the heart because it is so close to Valentines day and it is different then other hearts you might find. You can find heart earrings also.

She has a Celtic cross pendant and earrings and some Chinese Weave Earrings which are really creative.

She also has bracelets which she has created as a one of a kind item. Stop by her store and you will be surprised with the fun and affordable things she has made.

Let us know what you think about her store.

I really enjoy crocheting the tops on my towels and making dishcloths but I so envy those of you who are talented to make those beautiful afghans and blankets and all of the other wonderful things you create.
These winter days are a great time to sit and crochet and enjoy the warmth while looking out the window watching the snow flurries. We are lucky we are not getting the bad storm the east coast is getting.
These winter days are also give us time to do craft projects with our family which is always fun.
It also gives us time to explore new craft ideas and take the time to try them before the craft show season starts.
Wishing all of you a wonderful weekend.

Etsy Sellers

It is so much fun to look at other Etsy stores and find great gift ideas to buy from them. There are so many talented and creative crafters out there.
Wondering if it would be ok to do a blog about some of those crafters or do you need to ask them for permission to write a blog about their store.
Let me know if you would like me to take a look and talk about your store.
